Table Top Inventing is known for inspiring four-day Inventor Camps. Sign up this year to find out why so many parents say things like,

“This class has lit a fire under both of my kids! My daughter has made huge sacrifices to be here and LOVED every minute.”
~Brandy Messenger, Victorville, CA

Who should go to Inventor Camp?

Teenagers in 6-12th grade. Rising 5th graders can attend camp as well!

What is Inventor Camp?

Inventor Camp is the place to go when you want to become an inventor while having more fun than a theme park.  If you have heard of 3D printers or wondered how to program your own inventions, come to Inventor Camp.

For four days, you will have access to more 3D printers than all the schools in your town.  We haven’t released the top secret mission for this summer, but last summer, teen inventors created space cranes to safely land asteroid probes.  The summer before they created top secret security systems.  Believe us when we say having this much fun might be illegal!

When will Inventor Camp be, and how long is it?

Inventor Camps run from March through August.  Each camp is 4 action packed days days from 9am-4pm.

Why is it the Secret Weapon for Teen Inventors?

History tells us about 12 year olds captaining ships across thousands of miles, we shouldn’t be surprised that teenagers are capable of so much more than they are challenged to do.  It’s not that they need to be worked harder.  They need bigger horizons, more meaning, harder tasks.  The buzzword is “connected learning”, but we just call it “hard fun”.

Teens learn practical skills such as 3D printing, 3D CAD design, programming, and electronics, but in a fun and challenging environment.  They collaborate, not as a gimmick, but because the challenge is too hard to solve on their own.  We create challenges worthy of their intellect with tools powerful enough to hold their attention.  This is the best experience to jumpstart your teen’s curiosity AND technical skill.
